London Fire Brigade issue a major incident warning due to the sheer volume of 999 calls. They tweeted: Like our partners, we are asking Londoners to stay inside if possible and only travel if you really need to. If you do have to travel, check your journey with @nationalrailenq or @TfL before you leave home. If you have to go outside, don’t shelter under trees.

London Fire Brigade also tweeted: “Control has taken a number of unhelpful calls, including to a trampoline which was blowing around in a garden. Please listen to our advice and only call 999 if there is an emergency or if there’s an immediate risk to life so crews can respond to people who really need our help.”
